renewable energy resources act. >> thank you. barbara hill, assistant general manager for power. i am here today to discuss with you the way we are proposing to comply with the california renewable energy resources act. it's more commonly referred to as the rpf legislation. the act requires the puc to meet 100% of our retail sales with hetch hetchy and rps [speaker not understood] generation. what we're proposing to do is rely on our existing processes where possible and appropriate to incorporate compliance into our budgeting and financial planning process. in most years, in 83% of all years, business as usual, no extra action is necessary on the city's part to comply with this legislation. we would need to buy any additional rps supplies, 83% of the time. what i'm here today for is to get input and direction from you on our proposal to give our general manager the authority to procure rps supplies to meet any unexpected requirements when they do occur, typically in dry years or in the event of an unexpected generator outage. and to set a cost limitation for compliance, which is allowed u
as the storm is causing blackouts my next guest says our whole energy policy is wrong. he says there could be more than half a million jobs created in swing states in the next three to five years from hydrocarbon energy. mark mills is senior fellow with the manhattan institute. i was really interested to read your study. i thought one of your most interesting points was that we are oriented towards conservation and protectism of domestic resources right now but we could actually be a major producer and could be exporting energy which seems hard to get from here to there. you really think we have that much? >> well i know we have that much and this is the real surprise. in energy policy that we have to really change how we look at energy fundamentally. we've operated under the basis from almost half a century now since the big oil embargo of 1973 on the assumption that we're running out of oil, that we can't make enough here and only way out of this is find replacements for oil or conserve our way out of it. both those are important by the way, they continue to be important but what happene

and shine has more energy needs for more energy than they can produce themselves, and to maintain the economic growth which they believe is essential. we observed that the south china sea is a potential source of energy supplies for china and that there is a contention among the nations in that region as to where the ownership and rights of access are to the south china sea. and this is conceivable that china might seek to reestablish its claim there by military coercion and that could lead them into a confrontation with the united states' desire to maintain free access. the best way of avoiding that military conflict is what we should see because the military conflict with china would be catastrophic for both nations, indeed for the whole region. so, we want to avoid that. i believe the best way of avoiding that is by maintaining a -- continuing to maintain a strong naval presence in the region, and by having an unambiguous commitment to doing that. i believe that our new national security strategy is that unambiguous commitment, and i believe that the u.s. navy is capable of mai

a question, along the lines of energy use in the city, something that has been hard for us to figure out. and that has to do with what would inspire you, as someone who lives in the city, to give your data of your own energy use in the city, like your home energy use? all that data about when you use it, what are your hot times, your cool times. how about if we try to find some way to inspire people to give us that]h data, in some coordinated way. because if we understand that 20 to 22% of our emissions comes from1ar residenl use, you can imagine if we had that data coming from every household use in the city we could break that data down with involvement of creative people like yourselves, and then try o see where there's patterns where we could lessen our carbon footprint and talk about better energy use. that's perfect for us. that's what we're going to ask this challenge to present for our next improve sf challenge for the city. and that's what we'd like to engage people in. and then hopefully, some time after this challenge is announced, and if we can get the best ideas out there,

the west. that basically means a lot of energy and cold, dry air to mix in. then, you have a high-pressure system parked over greenland. that creates a blocking pattern, forcing energy back towards the storm and driving it into the east coast. the biggest concern in the coming days is the potential for four-foot to ten-foot coastal surge. that's expected in vulnerable areas, like d.c., new jersey and new york, where evacuation orders may be enforced. even though the forecast path takes its center right into southern new jersey and parts of delaware, the wind field will be huge on this. it will affect places like the carolinas. >>> that's why we have to check in with our matt gutman, in nags head, north carolina, this morning. matt? >> reporter: good morning, ginger. just over the past couple official hours, the wind has really started to howl through here, whipping up the waves. bringing up this seafoam. and this monster storm is still 450 miles away. up and down the atlantic coast, states declaring states of emergency. states of preparedness. there's sandbags being deployed in wa

notice that it does repeat a lot that the energy provided by cleanpower sf will be 100% renewable and clean. i think it might be useful when explaining that to mention that -- what the benefit of that is. that the power isn't going to come from power plants that create soot and cause childrens' asthma, and the reasons that many people in the community have for not wanting power plants in their community whether it's in san francisco or across the bay in another community as we saw with the trandzs bay cable. this enables people not to get the power from the power plants and enables the power plants not so much demand for them. i think it might be obviously not in such a complicated long way, but just to point out it's not just that it's clean and from solar and wind and that it's not from soot creating power plants. >> that's a point well taken to make sure we don't lose the opportunity to educate about the benefit of that choice. >> and this is a premium. there is a premium because it's a benefit to the air that we all breathe and share. >> thank you commissioner for that fee

for oil in the arctic, then invest the profits in renewable energy. consumers proved to be in a spending mood this october. the international council of shopping centers says retailers are reporting modest gains for the month. costco was one of those stores, with sales rising 7% from the same time last year. macy's' same-store sales popped 4.1%, while target saw a smaller increase of 2.4% - lower than analyst expectations. however, superstorm sandy remains a concern going forward. analysts think some consumers along the east coat may have spent extra preparing for sandy and that it could have an impact on christmas spending. retailers hope the spending trend continues into the holiday shopping season. big retailers such as best buy, macy's, kohl's and walmart all open bright and early at 12 am on black friday. kmart opens at 5 am and toys 'r' us at 9 am. and online shopping isn't left out - amazon will offer limited- time specials as part of its "black friday deals store." in corporate earnings, exxon topped earnings expectations even though profits fell 7% to $9.5 billion. the oil compa
